Slough Wellbeing Board

Health and wellbeing boards (HWBs) are designed to deliver strategic leadership on health and wellbeing in their areas in accordance with the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

Read more information on the Wellbeing Boards’ statutory functions.

The work of HWBs are central to informing the commissioning of health and social care services in Slough and have a key role in encouraging joined-up services across the NHS, social care, public health and other local partners.

Slough’s Wellbeing Board brings together Slough Borough Council, Slough’s Clinical Commissioning Group, HealthWatch Slough, Thames Valley Police, the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service and the voluntary and community sector with a shared focus on improving the health and wellbeing in Slough, tackling health inequalities and focusing on prevention.

You can find the full list of members on our committee details page.

  • local knowledge to be able to represent and reflect the views of Slough’s business community
